I would go with D here.
In the original sentence, there is a sequencing of events - the publicity campaigns were conducted and then Mauritius and Seychelles were established as the most popular tourist destinations of the year. This should be clarified. Moreover, the effect that these destinations will remain the most popular tourist destinations of the year should be given in present perfect tense because the latest issue has proclaimed something and that shall continue to be true throughout the year.

We can remove the "that were conducted" modifier and replace it with "conducted by..." without changing the meaning of the sentence.

Therefore, D.

Tough options.

Clear D!

The publicity campaigns is plural in number and must be followed by a plural verb(have)
Since, Option B and C use singular verb, they are incorrect.
Also, the publicity campaigns conducted by the tourism departments of Mauritius and Seychelles
is a better way of writing this!

Why cant A be the answer. Because the non underlined part is in the passive voice - According to the latest issue of Traveller magazine hence the answer must also be in the passive voice. B and C uses Had (Past perfect for a action that took place in the 2nd sequencing which is incorrect ) D and E uses active voice and So A is the answer. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thank you.

I couldn't quite understand why D and E are in active voice. In any case, as far as the meaning is clarified, it's deemed correct to use either Active or Passive voice.
And the game-changer for option D here is the fact that Mauritius and Seychelles are the most popular tourist destinations now and they shall continue to be so throughout the year.

Since the effect of something is continuing from past into the present, the use of Present Perfect tense is required and only option D takes care of that.

I hope this helps clarify. :)

My approach to this question is as follows. All the verbs in the sentence need to have a subject and vice Versha.
In option A, the publicity campaigns do not have any very attached to it. Established does not act as a verb but is a past participle.
In option B and C. They usage of “had established” is past perfect. Hence both the options are wrong.

In option D “have established” is the correct verb and “conducted...Seychelles” is a ed modifier that modifies “the publicity campaigns “.
Option E is yet again an option with no verb for “the publicity campaigns “.

Give a kudo if you like my explanation!

B and C refer to something that took place from one point in the past to another point in the past. so this changes the meaning as the original sentence uses "latest".
A and E use wrong tense.
D is the correct option because it initially uses simple past (conducted) and then present perfect tense to describe something that is continuing now, and will continue for some time.
